dropping FPS in intensive moments of games typically means that those moments stress the hardware more than a normal scene. your GPU is well below the standard for good 240FPS gaming, and realistically, your CPU is also not very good for it either. it will depend on the games you play though as light and/or older games would likely work perfectly fine on that hardware configuration. a list of exactly what games you play at what resolution you play them would be good to have. if you were expecting to play something like fortnite at 240fps steadily with those specs, I'm here to tell you its not gonna work out well for you. ditto for more demanding games.

my best estimate for this is about $300-450 USD. the 7600K would be good for entry gaming or for something like a NAS or a minecraft server. the boards are harder and harder to get for older gens, so those usually carry prices that are higher than they otherwise would be. having only 1 of the 2 8GB stick of ram makes that kit effectively a single channel kit which is (no offense) kind of sucky. not worth much. the SSD is decent. the 2TB HDD storage is a good addition, but you probably wouldnt get more than $30 for it. you picked a good PSU, so that would at least sell for a bit more than a basic dumpsterfire model. nobody uses disk drives anymore (ok, some people do, but if you do, please stop lol). the fans are ok. ditto for the CPU cooler. $450 is the most I would expect you to get for this. $300 sounds more like the range of price that people would offer locally. you might be able to raise the price a bit higher on a big marketplace like ebay, but you also have to deal with fees.

well, hard to completely say, but you're looking at:
CPU: $100 max
8GB DDR4 RAM: $25
GTX 1060 3GB: $80-90
B250 chipset motherboard (yours is low end): $40-50
1TB HDD: ~$20-25
128GB SSD: $10 max (otherwise you may as well just buy a new one for $20)
PSU (not stated): cannot estimate
Case (not stated): cannot estimate

all in all, you are looking at about $300 for the rig. if its a good power supply and/or case, you will probably be able to get as much as $350. if you can market youself and word the advertisment well, you might net yourself a little extra. for someone like me here on the forums knowing a little bit more than the average joe (things like the fact that a Ryzen 3 2200G is $85 new at the moment and matches the 7500; that a GPU with 3GB VRAM buffer is honestly not enough for some of the newest titles like MW, which can exceed that, etc), I would probably not pay more than $250 for the parts if I were interested in buying. Anyway, I hope this helps you.

considering that you can get GTX 580's for $30, im not sure what you would consider a "fair" price. fair is just market value and honestly, i wouldn't pay more than $15 if I were someone looking for a super budgety card. even AMD's Vega 11 graphics that come on the 2400G and 3400G APU's beat this.

with the monitor included, I would say value is roughly around $1400. you will definitely want to sell this sooner rather than later though if you want around that much due to the ryzen hypetrain taking over sales in the PC department. its a great system however and were I in need of a system, I would probably offer about $1350-1400 USD. Best of luck with your sale!

I tend to see GTX 970's going for about $75 on ebay. actual value is probably less, but I can only say what I've seen. ultimately, you can have whatever asking price you want, but whether or not someone buys it will tell you if your price is too high or not.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Trade H20 1080 TI SLI for 2080 TI?"

  • 1 month ago

its not like its totally unfair in terms of raw monetary value, but SLI isn't really worth it in 2020. I currently own a 2080 Ti XC Ultra from EVGA and would not go down to 1080 Ti SLI. in games that work well with SLI, you potentially could get better performance than a 2080 Ti, but those games are few and far between. the fact that they're water blocked is nice, but only the top 5-10% of people on these forums even use custom water cooling systems. I would recommend just straight up selling them for $475 each and putting that money toward a 2080 Ti, because honestly, you'd be pretty much there.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "how much for my pc?"

  • 2 months ago

If I were a potential buyer, I would first wonder how it is that your PC has 24GB of ram. do you have 3 8GB sticks?

Anyway, besides that weirdness, its not a bad rig at all. its definitely dated, but I would estimate you could get $700 out of this if you really wanted, though that would probably take a while in the current ryzen-heavy market. If you wanted a quick sale, I might recommend $600 as an asking price. I just sold a 1070 Ti SC2 for $240. the case is about $40. the cooler is about $50. The PSU is about $100-110. the SSD is around $35. the RAM is obviously 2 or 3 separate kits, so depending on speeds and such, those two/three kits are worth somewhere in the range of $70-80 total. the CPU/motherboard is outdated with only 4 cores/ 8 threads, so I estimate $150 is its true value, though because of how over-valued those older intel CPUs are, I would guess you could get $200 out of it. This all comes to around $735, but again, I think you will find that to be a difficult selling price, particularly here on PCPP. $600-650 would sell much faster.

most likely, the Z370 will need to be updated first. your particular board does not have USB flashback, so you will need an 8th gen chip to update first. you can certainly try the 9600K first as the BIOS may already be updated by the manufacturer if it was bought recently from a major retailer. if you want to purchase a CPU to do the update, this is compatible without a BIOS update and will allow you to perform the update. you could probably sell it here after you're done with it too.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Requesting Appraisal and Accepting Offers"

  • 2 months ago

I understand your confusion. the price hikes on older hardware is usually due to lack of inventory because its no longer produced, or produced in extremely small amounts. a 4x4GB kit of DDR3 usually should not go for more than $45 unless its a really good kit like DDR3-2400. the 4690K is hard to justify for a price above $60 or so due to the Ryzen 3 1200 and 2200G. a 240GB SSD is ~$25 used, a PNY one might go for a tad less, not sure. the GTX 970 (even a special gold edition) is probably not gonna go for a lot more than $90 considering the used RX 480, 470, 580, and 570 cards for $70-110. its roughly a 1060 3GB performance-wise, which puts it squarely into the upper-tier budget card market. it is however, older, uses more power, and runs hotter than a 1060 3GB or even 6GB. on top of that, the 970 is two generations back now. the wireless adapter is worth maybe $10. teh fans are worth around $30 in total. the monitor is perhaps $50. windows 10 in and of itself is not sellable on this site. the keyboard I have no idea. the mouse is probably $30. the headset is maybe $10 considering its $30 new price. the case is not something you should sell online due to the expensive shipping cost. the power supply I cannot give an estimate for without knowing the model. The older motherboards are generally bloated in price on ebay due to the lack of them remaining in working order. if you want the most money for it, put it for sale on ebay. if you want to give someone here a reasonable deal, it should be worth about $50. the cooler is $15-20 perhaps.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Custom Full Tower PC 5930k, 32GB RAM, 1TB HDD+512GB SSD--- What is it worth?"

  • 2 months ago
  • 2 points

the estimate I give you now will not be good in just a few more months. the estimates I give are based on current used market pricing. I cannot give you an estimate for next year. I would recommend not buying a new GPU for it. it will not be worth it to you. without a GPU, this build is worth in the ballpark of $500-600 with all the extras. the aging 5930K can be beat by a Ryzen 5 2600 generally, so unfortunately, time has not been kind to old HEDT systems. Best of luck with your sale, I would recommend using PCswaps.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How much can I sell this for"

  • 3 months ago
  • 2 points

not at all a bad build. most parts are definitely dated, but not all bad or anything. I am basing value on the used prices I can see from across craigslist, offerup, ebay, FB marketplace, pcswaps, r/hardwareswap, etc.
4790K: ~$90-100
H100i: ~$40
Z97 motherboard: ~$50-70
16GB DDR3: ~$30-40
GTX 1080: ~$300-340
Define R5: cannot find reliable data, assuming $40-60
CX750M: $50-60
in all, I would estimate the build to be worth roughly: $600-710. $710 is quite generous to be honest and the actual value will also somewhat come down to how good the PC looks to the average buyer, what storage it has, if airflow is good with whatever fans you use, etc. If you wanted to sell it quickly, $550 is a good bet.

I hate to break this to you, but a 6600K-16GB-GTX 970 build is no longer worth anywhere near $900, even with the other specs. at best, this is a $550-600 build. more likely, you will get $500 for it. I'm not saying this because I want it; believe me, I dont need it. back in 2015, this was a pretty good gaming PC. these days, $900 will buy you a lot more than this. here is what I mean:

if you are ok with like, High or medium high settings on newer games, an RTX 2080 or 2080 Super would cost less and probably do the job pretty well. I do say "less" lightly, because you're still gonna end up paying circa $800 USD.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Weird Intel Naming Line Up?"

  • 3 months ago
  • 2 points

there are also a few others, some of which you may not see as much anymore:
T: lower clocked (and lower power) variant of same chip
S: typically a lower-TDP variant of the same chip
H: typical suffix used for primary gaming CPUs on laptops (generally 45W ish)
U: low power chips for ultrabooks and thin-and-lights (generally 15-25W or so)
Y: extreme low power chips for ultrabooks or 2-in-1's (around 3-10W)
HK: laptop CPU that can overclock, typically used on beefy laptops with good cooling
HQ: same thing as H, but the nomenclature used on older chips from 7th gen and earlier

you can find L, M, and W most of the time on Xeon server/workstation chips
W: default suffix generally. literally stands for "workstation"
M: typically a suffix used for mobile (aka laptop) xeon chips. also used for early mainstream laptop chips.
L: lower power version of a W chip (in general) can also just mean a power-optimized chip and is not necessarily of the Xeon lineup

C: usually found on Atom chips used in lower power devices, though it does show up in a few mainstream 5th generation chips, like the i7-5775C

E: uncommon, seen on the i3-6100TE. E by itself indicates it can be used in embedded computing solutions, thought it also seems to mean "energy efficient". why intel employs one suffix which can mean two very different things is quite odd.

R: a chip that includes higher performance graphics than usual

MQ: predecessor to HQ. HQ became H. the reason for the Q is that it stood for "quad core". obviously, newer chips have more than that now, so they just removed it. To be even more confusing, the naming scheme before this was QM instead of MQ. means the same thing, but different suffix. this changed from MQ after 3rd gen mobile intel moved to 4th gen.

MX: predecessor to HK. basically the same idea.

P: energy efficient mobile CPU. this is the predecessor to the U series of chips.

while there are a few other combinations of suffixes used, most of them are older and not very relevant anymore.

PSU: $20-40: evidence
140mm H90 AIO: $30-40: evidence

best case scenario: $160+150+40+40=$390 USD. $600 is simply not a realistic asking price for such old hardware. we're talking about a platform that launched in August 2014 (nearly 5 and a half years ago). the IPC of the broadwell-E based 6850K cant even keep up with a cheap modern Ryzen 5 3600 which you can get for $189.99 new, not to mention that a board is significantly cheaper on average and will be supported for longer. $600 will buy you a 9700K 8 core CPU, a better cooler, a newer board, and a good PSU all in new condition: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wf8Jn7

brand new as in "sealed in box and never used" or as in "I built it myself and am now selling it"? if it is the latter, then it no longer counts as "brand new" and in fact, we have no good way to verify its "new" status. if we are talking the latter, its probably worth about $800-1100 USD. if everything is sealed, then probably just under retail pricing.
